Matluba Khan,an Assistant Professor of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, who has set up an outdoor classroom in Bangladesh, argues that a well-designed outdoor environment can be a rich setting for teaching and learning in a primary school .
Nusaybah Yusuf in this concluding part of Alochonaa’s Madrassa series, explains how Islamic schools in Bangladesh have contributed to the increased access in education and added value to student lives in a context public spending for education is low and poverty is widespread.
Madrassas have long held the mantle of valid learning institutions both culturally and religiously within Bangladeshi society. The primary mode of religious education today still falls under the ambit of madrassas. Nonetheless, whether these institutions are delivering a valid modus operandi for students to neutrally engage in religious and or civic education is a question which in Bangladesh at least is cause of much scholarly debate. Nusaybah Yusuf through this 2 part series is to examine the role and viability of madrassas and its effects as a moderate educational institution within Bangladeshi society.
